Porto Rozes Collors Collection Reserve
Rozes Reserve is characterized by a complex, aromatic structure with intense notes of spice and fruit. This is a rich, round, and delicious wine with a velvet and persistent finish.
Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo), and Tinto Cao. Bottled by SPR Vinhos. Rozes' ports are produced with the utmost respect by tradition. Circa 1855, Ostende Rozes, a Bordeaux wine trader from an important Portuguese family returned to his home country to produce port wine under his own brand. In 1910, Rozes set up business in Vila Nova de Gaia and the brand experienced a golden age in the 1920s. But it was his son, Edmond Rozes, who was the main driving force in the development and reputation of the company and their port wines. By the 30s Edmond created the Porto Rozes brand, choosing at the same time a form of bottle that would simultaneously allow identification of the brand and the port wine—thus creating the coated bottle, called 'a antiga portuguesa' ("the old Portuguese"), with its bottleneck wrapped in sulfur paper and a stopper sealed with wax. Since 1999, Porto Rozes is owned by Vranken-Pommery Monopole, the second largest champagne group and a leading distributor of rose wines who also happens to own port-wine brands.
